    I was fixing the buzzing sound coming from behind my glove box by cutting off the plastic sleeve. It seemed like the most of the buzzing was coming from this. I was half way finished with it when i noticed that i cut a few wires. I started the truck and noticed that my check engine light and the slip indicator light were illuminated. (obviously due to the cut wires). I attempted to reconnect but didn't succeed since some of the wires that i cut were the same color. (didn't know what wire goes where). What the F*!k should i do ?!?! i know this isn't going to be covered under warranty.

    also, the pain in the ass is how its so hard to get to the wires to try and reconnect.

    Many, see build thread.
    Once you get the right wires matched up use a pair of helping hands ans soldier the wires back up. Don't forget to put on your heat shrink before you solider them up!

    Are they yellow with a black tracer by chance? (the cut wires)
